Image-guided drug delivery refers to the combination of drug targeting and imaging. Preclinically, image-guided drug delivery can be used for several different purposes, including for monitoring biodistribution, target site accumulation, off-target localization, drug release and drug efficacy. Clinically, it holds significant potential for preselecting patients. In this editorial, we briefly summarize the main principles of image-guided drug delivery, and we describe its potential for facilitating, furthering and personalizing nanomedicine treatments.
